The issue of why women are allowed to enjoy male-oriented films, but not vice versa is interesting. People will scream “patriarchy,” but I can’t believe it’s so simple. I’ll say this too: Using “Mamma Mia” and SatC as examples distorts this. Sorry, but right or wrong (and we men might be wrong!), there’s nothing in those films to interest most guys. At least The Help had a broader, if patronizing, socio-political theme. The Heat, on the other hand, seems like a film both sexes can relate to. BTW: How are we characterizing Hunger Games in this discussion? Female lead, yes, but nothing like Twilight. And, for several reasons, not just oriented to women/girls.
